$10 burger and chips on Friday is unbelievable. So fresh and huge. Coming back tomorrow to try more of the excellent menu. Views to die for and friendly staff topped off a wonderful lunch.

My daughter and i shared arancini balls and vegetable frittata. Both were delicious and well presented. Salad was fresh and tasty. Service was quick. Glad we stopped here.

Great food and fabulous service, and an outstanding view. What better combination could you ask for. My favourite this month is the Belgian waffles with lemon curd, meringue crumble, raspberry coulée and whipped butter. All meals both sweet and savoury are excellent.
